Fun, action and enjoyment in the five-star Mayrhofen skiing area, with the best black piste, the best snow park and the biggest cable car, with 142 km of piste and 59 state-of-the-art ski lifts offering winter sports experiences for all levels and all tastes. The best fun park in the Alps and halfpipes to inspire snowboarders and free skiers.

100% courage, 78% downhill

There's black, there's blacker and there's the Harakiri. Even experienced skiers think twice about this now legendary slope on Mayrhofen's Penken Action Mountain: their feelings range from an enormous dose of respect through to euphoria about this 400 m section, because that's how long the steepest section is on this black piste, 2 km long overall, in the Horbergtal. With its 78% drop, the Harakiri is the steepest piste experience in Austria.


Mayrhofen-Hippach is known for its sporting, high-action winter holidays, and off-piste there are also, of course, cross-country skiing on the 35km cross country ski tracks, climbing and ice climbing, ice skating, and, if you're really up to it, paragliding directly off the skiing area.
